Step 2: Crochet Edgings
At end of last row, do not tie off. You will now be working around the entire blanket. (Row 1 is all double crochets, which holds the ribbon. Row 2 is all scallops.)
Row 1: Ch 3.

• Side 1: Working down the left side of the blanket, 3 dc into each dc from each row. At the last dc, 5 dc to form a corner.

• Side 2: Working across the bottom of the blanket, 1 dc in each stitch. At the last st, 3 dc to form a corner.

• Side 3: Working up the right side of the blanket, 3 dc into each dc from each row. At the last dc, 5 dc to form a corner.

• Side 4: Working across the top of the blanket, 1 dc in each st. At the last st, 2 extra dc to form corner. Do not tie off. Continue to make scalloped edgings.
Row 2: 1 sc, *Sk 2 sts, 5 dc in next st, sk 2 sts, sl st into next st* Rep all around blanket. For corner scallops, only skip 1 st, instead of 2, then continue normally. Join with sl st to beg sc.  Fasten off and weave in ends.

Step 3: Attach Ribbon
Use ribbon size 3/8” in your preferred color. Length is approximately 41⁄2 yards.  Ribbon is inserted into Row 1 edgings. Start from one corner, weave in ribbon through every 5th dc all around blanket. Tie a pretty bow where ends meet.

You’re finished! 😊✨
